Arrangements and Transcriptions
For Male Chorus and 2 Pianos (Petri)
Egon Petri (1881–1962)
Leipzig: Breitkopf und Härtel, 1909. Plate V.A. 2861.
This file is part of the Sibley Mirroring Project. Could be considered a 2-piano arrangement where the choral score is there for reference- probably rather better and probably the actual intention, since the chorus can see their part in the final movement but that's not so good as having choral parts to read from.

The author's revised and extended version of the cadenza for the 4th movement was only published in the concerto's arrangement for 2 pianos (1909). This file is from the MIT archive project.
